[movies]GET LAMP: Jim Aspnes Interview - Jason Scott

This is a slightly buggy and extremely silly adventure game I wrote in my spare time long long ago (about 4.32 years, when I was young and foolish and not even nineteen yet). I thought some people might find it amusing. It's playable, but not quite complete, i.e. could use some fleshing out here and there, particularly in a couple of spots where the player is killed without any warning whatsoever.
